The Dysart Education Foundation announced that college scholarship applications are now being accepted through March 15.

Graduating seniors from Dysart, Shadow Ridge, Valley Vista and Willow Canyon high schools are invited to apply.

DEF supports learning beyond a student’s K-12 experience. Each graduating senior may submit one application to be eligible for multiple scholarships from DEF administered by the Arizona Community Foundation.

DEF, along with local donors, will be awarding 23 students with a total of $92,000 in scholarship funds. Students graduating from the four high schools in the Dysart Unified School District are encouraged to apply.

DEF offers one- and two-year scholarships. Students attending a trade school, community college, or university may apply to receive any one of the DEF scholarships.

To apply, visit dysarteducationfoundation.org/scholarships and click on the direct link to apply on the ACF General Application.

The recipients will be notified by ACF via email by March 29. The student recipients and their parents/guardians will be invited to attend the Dysart Education Foundation Awards Dinner on Wednesday, April 17 to accept their scholarships.

Student scholarship recipients are responsible for keeping ACF/DEF informed of all current information concerning home address, emails, class schedules, GPA and transcripts. A separate link will be provided via email from DEF to scholarship recipients in December, May 2025 and December 2025 to update the organization and its scholarship donors each semester. Failure to provide required documents may result in the loss of the scholarship.

The Dysart Education Foundation is a nonprofit organization supporting students and teachers in the Dysart district.

As Arizona’s largest independent provider of scholarship funding, ACF offers access to more than 150 scholarships through a single online application. Applicants complete one application that instantly matches them with scholarship opportunities for which they may be eligible.

During the 2023-24 academic year, ACF awarded $5.2 million in scholarships to more than 1,200 students across Arizona.

Scholarships are available for high school seniors, current college students, graduate students, or adult re-entry students attending accredited two-year and four-year colleges and universities, as well as career and technical schools anywhere in the United States.

Each scholarship opportunity has a designated deadline, with some as early as March or as late as May. Students are encouraged to apply early to maximize their opportunities.

Scholarships can be awarded based on merit or financial need and may be restricted to students from a particular geographic region or with specific demographic characteristics.
